    Details of Disappearance

    Kimberly was last seen standing at a bus stop on Stevens Circle in Laurinberg, North Carolina at 7:00 a.m. on April 29, 2004. She was supposed to attend classes that day at Scotland High School. A witness saw an African-American man put his arm around her, and they went into the woods together. She has never been heard from again.

    Kimberly never arrived at school and has never been heard from again. She may still be in the local area and may be with a male companion. Kimberly's case remains unsolved. Although she is classified as a runaway, authorities are re-examining her case due to the years that have passed without any contact from her.
